Nutritious Summer Drink

Apple Cranberry Smoothie

Bring home, bright flavors of Apples and Cranberries this summer with this, so simple, Apple Cranberry Smoothie.

I always make smoothies with almost no sugar and just a touch of honey or Agave syrup. This way my family enjoy these nutritious drinks and I still manage to keep sugar away from their diet.

For the same reasons, I have also used unsweetened cranberry juice in this smoothie which might be little tart for your taste. You can add some honey or use cranberry sweetened juice if you prefer.

Super Charge Your Diet with Apple Cranberries Banana and Yogurt Smoothie

This smoothie has natural sweetness from banana, apple and sweet naval oranges.

I also call this smoothie my fruit yogurt cocktail :=) A glass of this nutritious drink for lunch and you are good to go.
